On The Move

It’s hard to ignore all the hype and buzz around digital transformation — and for good reason. Disruptive technologies have the potential to render many current business processes obsolete. But while disruptive technologies are often slow to overtake the status quo, there are no guarantees of success along the journey. 
Today’s distribution and fulfillment operations are reaching the point where they have to take chances to succeed, thrive or even survive — especially those competing in the hyper-competitive, fast-paced world of e-commerce. As a result, many are making a digital transformation to more automated processes and connected facilities, both made possible by the industrial internet of things (IIoT). 
Today’s distribution center (DC) operations struggle to keep pace with the speed and complexity of modern e-commerce, with volume increasing at around 25 percent each year. DCs need to keep pace with rising customer expectations for order speed and accuracy, even as growth pushes the limits of their capacities. 
Businesses are facing an unprecedented change in the demands and challenges of today’s e-commerce explosion. Growth trends, business channels, and market competitors are considerably different than 5 years ago and will only continue to change. More than half of our customers reported that demands have intensified dramatically during the past 24 months and have concerns about their ability to respond to these intensifying challenges. 
Mobility is one of the key factors enabling robots to thrive in logistics environments as never before. While many technologies are changing the game in warehouse automation, mobility is on the front edge, making it possible for robots to deliver more capabilities, increase productivity, and relieve labor burdens — all while reducing costs. 

Drive Performance, Productivity and Safety Improvements With Voice-Directed Workflows

For decades, voice technology has been used in order fulfillment and manufacturing operations to empower mobile workers and drive process improvements. Primarily used to automate inefficient picking processes and provide structure to maintenance and inspection (M&I) tasks, voice-directed technology delivers proven operational efficiencies and worker benefits, including:

Maintaining Data Security in a Digital Age

Augmented Reality Offers a New Vision to DC Maintenance Operations 

Unplanned downtime and lost productivity can cost a DC hundreds of thousands of dollars per hour. Customer service levels can also suffer, potentially creating losses that are not as easily measured.
